Spring 2015 not offered
|Certificates: International Relations|
This course examines economic interaction between countries through exchange of goods and services (international trade) and borrowing and lending (international finance). The course will cover basic international trade theory, which seeks to explain patterns of specialization (i.e., which countries produce which goods) and the gains and losses associated with international trade. Trade policies such as tariffs and institutional arrangements governing them (e.g., the World Trade Organization) will also be examined. International finance topics include the balance of payments, exchange rates, and international financial crises.
The course is intended to be accessible for students with an introductory-level background in economics. Economics majors are encouraged to consider instead taking ECON371 and ECON331 that provide more advanced treatment of international trade and international finance topics.
